Boy It's Been Cold

I suppose it's silly to expect anything less considering that we are in WINTER  but boy it's been cold !

Our vegetable garden is looking very unloved and definitely in winter mode !

Due to a medical condition I have been unable to give it any love.

My son in law came to the rescue last weekend.  We bought some raised vegetable garden beds so that I can tend to them much easier and he completely cleared everything out and has begun to pine mulch the rest with a heavy builders plastic underneath to kill off the protruding weeds.  I will be able to container plant on top of this.  He will finish off the task later this week.  It is looking amazing.

Here are a few pics to show you how cold it has been down here in southern Tassie.  It was -3 when I took Amy to the school bus on Monday morning.

And this was the new vegetable patch area at 7am.  Covered in icy frost.

Just looking at it makes you feel cold.  It is a balmy 10 degrees celcius here today though so practically summer LOL

I spent some time over the weekend finishing off the MAY blocks for Nature's Journey.  I have begun work on the June blocks and hope that I am able to be done by next Tuesday which marks the end of the month.  Fingers crossed I can make the deadline.

Thank you for all of the lovely comments and e-mails.  I am slowly working my way through them.

I have a few important appointments this week.  Hopefully once they are over we can make some firm decisions about our future.

I think that is a real winter!! Its even cool in Brisbane at the moment. The raised beds are such a great idea, though I imagine its hard to grow vegetables in winter there.
